Eric Trump says Democrats 'not even people' for challenging father

Eric Trump says Democrats are 'not even people,' and the DNC chairman is a 'whack-job'

Eric Trump, following in his father's footsteps, issued some blunt talk about the very vicious left and its very vicious hatred - and now, predictably enough, his comments are being a bit skewed, no doubt, in order to drum up some of that vicious leftist hatred to generate even more anti-Trump headlines.

On Tuesday evening, Eric Trump, one of the Trump children supposedly managing the family business while their father manages the nation, went on Fox News to complain about the Democratic Party in an astonishingly vitriolic attack. He took their money and kept it. People believed they were supporting a good cause, but instead it went into the pockets of Donald Trump.

While President Donald Trump is known for keeping Twitterati on their feet (or rather fingertips), late Tuesday saw his son, Eric Trump, becoming the talk of social media after he gave a couple of interviews. "We don't - we just don't mix", Eric said, Politico reported.

"You see the Democratic Party, they're imploding", he continued.

Later the next day, after being told Forbes had several other questions, he sent a paragraphs-long text message, which read in part: "I was reflecting on it last night and have to say I was really disappointed when you said the story would be 'fair.'". "They have no message, so what do they try to do?"

"You see the head of the DNC who is a total whack job", he exclaimed.

The man who, it was revealed this week, funneled money out of a charity for children with cancer and into his father's businesses, is saying Democrats and others who oppose Trump aren't people.

According to reporter Dan Alexander, the Eric Trump Foundation, which raises money for the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis, was relatively generous in the first years of its existence, taking a moderate $50,000 in overhead to cover the costs of its annual charity golf tournament at the family's club in Westchester County, New York.

Two people directly involved told Forbes that in 2011 Donald Trump "specifically commanded that the for-profit Trump Organization start billing hundreds of thousands of dollars to the nonprofit Eric Trump Foundation". "When asked for an itemized list of expenses, the Eric Trump Foundation declined to respond", reports Forbes.

'We get to use our assets 100 per cent free of charge, ' Trump said, according to the article.

The charity tournament began in 2007, and to date, the report states $11 million was donated to St. Jude's.

In an interview with ABC News that aired Tuesday, Eric Trump asserted that the Trumps have no dealings with Russian Federation and no projects with Russian Federation.

In what is already shaping up to be a very bad week for Donald Trump, has also not been a great week for his kids.

The increased costs for the tournament coincided with changes to the Foundation's board in 2010, when it changed from being made up of mostly Eric's personal friends to those closely connected with the financial interests of the Trump Organization, according to Forbes.
